Champions League will be REDRAWN after Man Utd controversially land PSG with original last-16 draw declared void

The Champions League last 16 fixtures will be REDRAWN after an almighty balls-up by Uefa.

SunSport understands Uefa chiefs are set to pick the eight clashes again after Manchester United were denied the chance to play Atletico Madrid.

Instead they were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain, setting the stage for a blockbuster clash between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

But it will be back to the drawing board after United’s number appeared to be left out of the pot in the draw to face Atletico.

Things had already started shakily for the Red Devils in Nyon as they waited to find out who they would face in the next round.

They were initially drawn against Villarreal – something that should not have happened as they were both in Group F and therefore not eligible to meet in the last-16.

Instead a redraw was ordered and United’s crosstown rivals Man City were selected to play Unai Emery’s side.

Crucially, United were not then put back in the mix to face Atletico – with another group-stage foul-up adding to Uefa’s woes.

Liverpool WERE stunningly included in the draw to face Diego Simeone’s side, even though they too had faced each other in Group B.

Fans online demanded a redraw as some cheekily called for VAR to step in after the string of Uefa shockers.

Fan Nabilbaracat wrote on Twitter: “This is the VAR review portion of the #UCL draw…”

And user Reubenish joked: “Now Man United want English Refs and VAR to review the UEFA round 16 draw.”

With Liverpool ruled out as an option, Atletico were drawn to face Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich.

Atleti bosses were fuming as they demanded an explanation from Uefa after being drawn against Europe's highest-ranked side.
